Summary

Summary

It's the Christmas Eve shift at Firehouse One. All the firefighters are sitting down to bowls of hot chili when an old fireman stops by for a bite to eat. The firemen have to leave to fight a fire and return to find that he was not an ordinary firefighter-they were visited by Sgt. St. Nick!

Publisher's Weekly Review

In a timely addition to Pelican's line of Christmas books, they add Firefighter's Night Before Christmas by Kimbra Cutlip, illus. by James Rice. A surprise guest visits while the team answers a call for help; they return to a bevy of gifts. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-The firefighters who pull the Christmas Eve shift are surprised when a red-suited fireman whose badge reads "Zero North" visits them. While the visitor is getting comfortable, an alarm sounds and the men rush off to save a burning furniture store. On their return, they find that Ol' Sergeant Nick left presents for everyone, including a shiny new pumper. Another takeoff on Clement C. Moore's Christmas standard, this picture book reads awkwardly and haltingly. Some of the rhymes are stilted and forced and the plot lacks imagination. Sketchy pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork accompanies the first-person text.-I. A. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
